Saunter next-door to the Clucking Hen Café and Bakery, then to Glass Artisans who offer daily glassblowing demos or across the street to Woodsmiths Studios for fine working crafts. There are many other shops, restaurants, rivers and beaches within 15 km of our home. A 35-45 minute drive in either direction will take you to the quaint village of Baddeck or to the picturesque landscapes of the Highlands National Park in Ingonish.

I am passionate about making your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. I also work for a non-profit organization in Sydney, NS. I am an environmentalist and nature enthusiast. I enjoy traveling, sunny days at the beach, reading, listening to music, local organic food and spending time with my grandchildren.
